It depends how it's done. We have a talk with the whole band about the importance of every member and explain what alternates are and why we have to have them. We also explain the factors that go into making those decisions and emphasize that spot assignments can change at any time for a number of reasons. Then the leaders pass out the coordinate sheets to everyone in their section and they go set up where their sheets say to. I'm not sure if you consider that the section leaders "breaking the news" or not. We break the news that some of them are going to be alternates, and the symbol on their dot card tells them the rest.
So...does your head director have section leaders who break the news to the alternates that they are alternates...nit quite right if you ask me...
